Well, the 45 seconds of sailing footage is pretty cool, but didn't they run a whole day of competition? Hopefully there's more coming.

Well that is just a great Vid on continent 7. I have been to Brandon Bay or thereabouts, and appreciate anything like that. Maybe the posters that don't like it ought to go out in those conditions with a camera and return something good.

Wow!!! Now that makes windsurfing truly look like an extreme sport.

Red Bull Storm Chase Mission 2 update:
The team is watching whether the storm off of Galicia turns out to be enough to run Mission 2 next week.

The six remaining athletes are getting ready in case the event happens...
Daniel Bruch, Robby Swift, Thomas Traversa, Marcilio Browne, Julien Taboulet, Victor Fernandez Lopez

Mission One summary video has been seen over 160,000 times! -- it has the power to make you hold your breath and curl your toes....

Josh Angulo: "70 knots! I just don't know if it's possible....there's just an unbelievable amount of force out there right now."

Thanks for posting hodad ... I wasn't paying attention to this. This sure wouldn't match my quiver. Cool to see.

It really is quite insane. Live updates from the event are available: The wind is averaging 45. They are sailing heats right now, and Marcilio Browne just hit a sizeable double-forward. As you can see from the iWindsurf/WindAlert forecast on the StormChase page (screen shot here), they are absolutely in the right spot on the globe for high wind.....
